PHP-Fusion is a CMS (Content Management System) coded in PHP (a server side scripting
language) with a MySQL database running the backend. A CMS is a system which integrates
a lot of functions usable for establishing and maintaining a homepage on the internet in such a
way, that all the functions are part of the same solution and so that all maintenance of the
homepage is done via a web-browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox or similar).
PHP is a scripting language capable of establishing connections with a database and retrieving
and presenting data from this database in the form of a HTML page. And in a CMS like PHPFusion,
this means that all the information necessary to form the pages that the users will see,
is stored in the database and the pages are created dynamically as the user requests them.
PHP-Fusion distinguishes itself from other CMS packages by being very compact (the whole
system in the newest version fills less than 2.5 Mb including TinyMCE - an editor from
Moxiecode), very effective (pages are created and presented very fast) and very flexible (the
system is easy to adapt and expand according to your needs). PHP-Fusion is under constant
development, and behind the system you find a very active community and a constantly
growing network of users – experts and others.
